Mortgage Rates Are Rising and Housing Will Likely Sputter in 2015's Second Half Last week I wrote about the U.S. housing industry's vulnerability to higher interest rates. Sell Side Optimistic on Homebuilders As we enter warmer weather in the country and the seasonally-important home-selling season, most analysts are high on the homebuilding sector. I believe the optimism is misplaced. I expect, away from the silliness in the high end, for the average home price to flatline and for activity/turnover to disappoint throughout the balance of the year. Diverging Charts (REITs and Homebuilders) Over long periods of time, the REIT and Homebuilder indices tend to move together on a directional basis. But over the last three- and six-month periods, the Homebuilder Index has materially outperformed the REIT Index (IYR). I believe that the Homebuilder Index can move back towards the REIT Index and that the gap should narrow, as both are rate sensitive.Here is the comparison (XHB vs. IYR) on the three-month chart. And here is the comparison (XHB vs. IYR) on the six-month chart. Lower Highs, Lower Lows A classical negative technical picture. Lower Lumber Prices As noted by Bobby Lang (to me in an e-mail just now), the price of lumber is back to three-year lows. Over history, lumber prices correlate well to residential housing activity in the U.S. (see chart below). I will be shorting XHB today.
Our two areas of interest are 2095.75/2097.25 and 2070.
We have a bullish short-term oil rally within a bearish trend.
Your best bet is to stick to your discipline.
The best thing to do is get out of the way.
